Dear Sir,
A friend of my gave me your add. and told me of your splendid pamplets. I am twenty nine years old, have had two babies, both with critical instrument cases. It meant either the child or my death.
The doctor told me if I get that way again it will mean my life, and yet the wont tell me how to prevent it. They say it is against the law and if they would help me it would be very expensive.
I cant feel that it would be unlawful when a woman's life depends on it. If only you can understand how desperately I need your help, I am sure you are kind enough to help me if possibly. I cannot tell you how very much I will appreciate it.
Sincerely yours
Mrs. ___________
